I’m having a hard time getting ansible to consistently (connect to?) sequence JF’s.
Can anyone who has a ansible<crow<JF’s setup verify this is working consistently for them?
Occasionally it works but after power cycle I have to do a bunch of plugging/unplugging grid/ ansible leader pad turned on/off combos, and throw a Norns in the mix to get it going again. I’ve run the ii.pullup and reset commands in druid as well.
Sometimes it works, most of the time it’s not. Norns is running Awake and it is sequencing JF’s as normal.
Edit: Is there a way for ansible leader mode to not automatically be on after power-cycling?
In my case also having Teletype connected makes everything work fine. When I have crow, W/, Ansible, and Just Friends on the bus, the procedure that seems so far to work consistently is:
make sure leader mode is disabled, then tap the preset key to exit the preset page and save leader mode settings to flash.
reset the case (I’m using a Tiptop Mantis)
now enable leader mode.
This seems to work every time, at least with my current I2C wiring (all three modules are on a single 3x2-pin ribbon cable). As opposed to @scanner_darkly’s experience with multipass apps linked above, I am able to toggle leader mode off and on in this case and it still works. I am even able to send ii commands from crow simultaneously.
If I have leader mode enabled when I power Ansible on, it’s not able to communicate. In some cases I can still get crow to talk to Just Friends if I mess with the jf.mode.
If I replace JF with TXo, I can’t get it to work. If I then add either or both modules to the bus and add Teletype, it works again. I’m not too sure what’s going on here but I’m certainly intrigued, for now I would say probably a powered busboard or Teletype is the best bet. Interested to hear if the procedure above works for others or there’s something case / bus specific about this behavior.
Thanks for looking into this. I am not having luck so far and have run into a strange issue with crow. Every time I restart the case now the pullups are low. I am unsure how to get crow back to starting with them high. Here is a snapshot of what I’ve been seeing. It’s funny JF’s makes a little sound like it wants to go when ansible leader mode is selected but then nothing happens. I have ordered a mini powered bus board though and hopefully that cures all of this.
